Tubes withstand pressure better than tanks. You can readily buy say 1"/25mm diameter acrylic tube and bubble in them. Having done something similar, I'd suggest that you use something thicker than water to get a nice bubble effect - washing up liquid worked for me.

Commercially-available ones just use water.

They also add extra stuff, such as LED lighting, and things that bob up and down with the bubbles, such a beads, glitter or toy fish.

Well, yeah. People say that to use tube is more efficient, because you will spend less money. And they are right from this point of view.

But if you want a Water Bubble Wall, you can just check out this article:

.  At it's simplest, it's just a very narrow aquarium and an air pump.
.  You should be able to find plenty of info by searching the Internet for "bubble wall" or "aquarium"
.  Keep in mind that it will be rather top-heavy, so keep the bottom well-secured.
